Time: 12:21 EST/17:21 GMT | News Source: Network World | Posted By: Robert Stein

Microsoft wants the Xbox 360 to be the one-stop tech shop for all your entertainment needs: gaming, TV, movies, music and DVDs. But wait, there's more! Microsoft is trying to patent a Kinect 3D body scanner to estimate age and function as an Xbox viewing police AKA an automated parent control. A Microsoft Xbox web-based, pay-TV deal may be officially announced this week. Programming is expected to include movies, sports, TV shows and music. Bloomberg reported that Microsoft is working with Comcast and Verizon for a pay-TV service over Xbox LIVE. Microsoft is also expecting to sign deals with Time Warner, HBO, Sony Picture's Crackle streaming service, NBC Universal's Bravo and Syfy channels, and Lovefilm UK.
